Technology helps lower farmers' chemical use

A $541,050 federal grant will enable researchers at The Rodale Institute (TRI) to demonstrate how a new spin on old technology could reduce the need for toxic herbicides in American agriculture.

TRI's modified no-till technology adds mechanical rollers, which kill weeds by running over them.

Collaborators in 10 areas across the United States have agreed to cooperate in demonstrating this technology on farms.

The Rodale Institute is a not-for-profit educational and research organization committed to sharing information globally about successful agricultural solutions to health and environmental problems. It was established in 1943.
